Alfred Théodore Joseph BASTIEN (1873-1955) is a Belgian painter.
He was a student at the academies of Ghent and Brussels.
Professor, then director of the Academy of Brussels, he is also a member of the Royal Academy of Belgium.
Bastien was also a great traveler. He made a long tour of Europe, then to North Africa (1905-1098) and finally to the Congo in 1913.
From his travels in Morocco and Algeria, he brought back numerous studies, from which he produced very luminous compositions that he exhibited at the Cercle Artistique et Littéraire.
From 1914 to 1918, he settled along the Yser, a small coastal river between France and Belgium.
His landscapes, filled with light, are directly inspired by his masters Delacroix and Courbet.
His paintings can be found in many museums around the world, including the British Museum.
